B1 - Courses

The B1 courses are suitable for advanced learners with a good language basis.

If you have already learned German on your own or otherwise and have reached level A2 in a free placement test, the B1 course is the right choice for you.

Our teachers speak mostly simple German and rarely English in the course. During lessons actual topics will be discussed, students' interests will be also taken into consideration.

At the end of the course students will be able to express, explain and justify their opinions, wishes and hopes in order to participate in discussions.

More general information about our courses can be found in the module handbook.

If you do not have the requirements for the UNIcert® certificate, you will receive a digital FHWS language certificate via e-mail after passing the exam.

Please be patient, it takes approx. 6-8 weeks until the FHWS language certificate is created.

You will need even more patience for the UNIcert® certificate. It is first approved by the examination board, then signed by the chairperson of the examination board, then signed by the president of the FHWS and is only then ready for collection. This takes about 1 semester.

If you urgently need a language certificate, we can send you a provisional confirmation if you write us the reasons via the contact form.
